Festival workshops

Experience the rich and vibrant culture if West Africa through drumming! Rhythm of Life present energetic and fun African Drumming workshops, lead by Guinean master drummer Mohamed Camara. The workshops cover basic djembe technique, call-and-response, solos, accompaniments, improvisation and African song. Suitable to people of all ages and abilities, with no experience necessary. We provide up to 40 drums for the workshops!

Testimonials:

 

'On behalf of Whitehorse City Council, I thank you and Mohamed for participating in the harmony Day event on Sunday. Your activity marquee and stage performance were both fantastic and important in making this a multicultural and vibrant event'.

 

-Vivian Tee, Whitehorse Harmony Day Festival

 

'The town heard the drums talk and their message was an invitation for people to join in and play. A fresh, vibrant and engaging event. Mohamed and Anna brought the Village Green alive with the throbbing of the drums and soon young and old together were enjoying this new event. Families, adults, children - they all participated in the sessions. An audience of those who either couldn't find a seat or were too hesitant to participate, also enjoyed the energetic drumming. Smiles were seen all around and people wandered off at the end with a lilt to their steps and a promise to come back next year'.

-Henry Toller-Bond, Publicity Officer 

'I attended the Multicultural Festival on the weekend, and really enjoyed the music you guys provided for us'.

-Deanne Dwight
